NAME

       cupsaddsmb - export printers to samba for windows clients

SYNOPSIS

       cupsaddsmb  [ -H samba-server ] [ -U samba-user[%samba-password] ] [ -h cups-server[:port]
       ] [ -v ] -a
       cupsaddsmb [ -H samba-server ] [ -U samba-user[%samba-password] ] [ -h  cups-server[:port]
       ] [ -v ] printer [ ...  printer ]

DESCRIPTION

       The  cupsaddsmb  program  exports printers to the SAMBA software (version 2.2.0 or higher)
       for use with Windows clients.  Depending on the  SAMBA  configuration,  you  may  need  to
       provide  a  password  to  export  the printers.  This program requires the Windows printer
       driver files described below.

   SAMBA CONFIGURATION
       cupsaddsmb uses the RPC-based printing support in SAMBA to provide printer drivers and PPD
       files  to  Windows  client  machines.   In order to use this functionality, you must first
       configure the SAMBA smb.conf(5) file to  support  printing  through  CUPS  and  provide  a
       printer driver download share, as follows:

           [global]
            load printers = yes
            printing = cups
            printcap name = cups

           [printers]
            comment = All Printers
            path = /var/spool/samba
            browseable = no
            public = yes
            guest ok = yes
            writable = no
            printable = yes

           [print$]
            comment = Printer Drivers
            path = /etc/samba/drivers
            browseable = yes
            guest ok = no
            read only = yes
            write list = root

       This  configuration  assumes  a FHS-compliant installation of SAMBA; adjust the [printers]
       and [print$] share paths accordingly on your system as needed.

   MICROSOFT POSTSCRIPT DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS
       The base driver for Windows 2000 and higher is the Microsoft PostScript driver,  which  is
       available    on    any    system    running    Windows    2000    or    higher    in   the
       %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\3     folder     for     32-bit     drivers     and
       %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\X64\3 folder for 64-bit drivers.

       Copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to
       the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:

           ps5ui.dll
           pscript.hlp
           pscript.ntf
           pscript5.dll

       Note: Unlike Windows, case is significant - make sure that you use the lowercase filenames
       shown above, otherwise cupsaddsmb will fail to export the drivers.

OPTIONS

       cupsaddsmb supports the following options:

       -H samba-server
            Specifies the SAMBA server which defaults to the CUPS server.

       -U samba-user[%samba-password]
            Specifies the SAMBA print admin username which defaults to your current username.  If
            the username contains a percent (%) character, then the text following the percent is
            treated as the SAMBA password to use.

       -a   Exports all known printers.  Otherwise only the named printers are exported.

       -h cups-server[:port]
            Specifies a different CUPS server to use.

       -v   Specifies  that  verbose  information  should be shown.  This is useful for debugging
            SAMBA configuration problems.
